  2. Tota Italia : essays in the cultural formation of Roman Italy

    Torelli, Mario
    Oxford : Clarendon Press ; New York : Oxford University Press, 1999.

    The aim of the book is to present the path the Romans followed in shaping the culture of the ruling classes of the Allies between the years of the conquest in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC and the age of Augustus, when a unified culture of Italy emerges as a pillar of imperial power. Taking an anthropological approach, Mario Torelli places special emphasis on the religious values and cult traditions that developed during the archaic period and the early attempts to colonize Latium, and which were subsequently spread by the Romans throughout Italy by means of Latin colonies. Formal temples of Latin (or, in south Italy, Greek) tradition enjoyed a special prestige among the Italic tribes and played a fundamental role in the construction of the urban ideal, one of the main principles of cultural transformation. The book also puts under scrutiny the survival of indigenous peoples in particular areas, such as Daunia and Lucania, and great attention is given to the evidence provided by such ethnic groups of resistance and counter-acculturation in Etruria, Lucania, and elsewhere in Italy.

  3. Virgil's fourth Eclogue in the Italian Renaissance

    Houghton, L. B. T., 1978-
    Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2019.

    Virgil's fourth Eclogue is one of the most quoted, adapted and discussed works of classical literature. This study traces the fortunes of Eclogue 4 in the literature and art of the Italian Renaissance. It sheds new light on some of the most canonical works of Western art and literature, as well as introducing a large number of other, lesser-known items, some of which have not appeared in print since their original publication, while others are extant only in manuscript. Individual chapters are devoted to the uses made of the fourth Eclogue in the political panegyric of Medici Florence, the Venetian Republic and the Renaissance papacy, and to religious appropriations of the Virgilian text in the genres of epic and pastoral poetry. The book also investigates the appearance of quotations from the poem in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century fresco cycles representing the prophetic Sibyls in Italian churches.
